Jets GM on Fitzpatrick deal: 'Big sigh of relief'

After finalizing a deal worth $12 million with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, New York Jets GM Mike Maccagnan said he now wants "to go forward with this whole thing and get the team ready to play."

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan, in a sit down with the beat writers, said it was a "big relief" to get Ryan Fitzpatrick signed. He wouldn't get into the specifics of the negotiations. He said Mo Wilkerson's contract won't preclude them from signing Sheldon Richardson, who is signed through 2017. Maccagnan praised Geno Smith, all but assuring him a spot on the 53. He said they're open to keeping four quarterbacks.

Jets coach Todd Bowles was vague when asked about a return date for CB Darrelle Revis, who had wrist surgery in March and isn't practicing. Revis, too, declined to give a timetable. Bowles said he expects Revis to be ready for the season opener.

Jets practice recap: Terrific day by Ryan Fitzpatrick (23-for-26). Who needs OTAs? Three nice deep balls by Geno Smith. Only blemish was an interception with 20 seconds on the clock in a hurry-up situation. Kenbrell Tbompkins, on his 28th birthday, was everywhere. Rookie WR Jalin Marshall is turning heads.

The Jets have begun team drills and there's no sign of DE Sheldon Richardson.

There's a reason why you won't find Matt Forte in this running-back drill at Jets camp. The former Bears star already is nursing a hamstring injury.

Brandon Marshall's bet is risky

Antonio Brown appears willing to take Marshall's wager on who will have more receiving yards in 2016, and rightfully so. Both had huge seasons in 2015, but Brown had 332 more receiving yards despite some inconsistency at QB.

Details of Ryan Fitzpatrick's contract with the Jets: Technically, it's a two-year contract with a voidable. Five days after the Super Bowl, it voids to one year. The two-year structure allows them to spread the signing bonus ($10M) over two years. His base salary is $2M, meaning his cap charge is $7M. There will be a $5M dead charge in 2017.
